The University’s International Student Orientation Program is designed to welcome and transition new undergraduate international students to the institution and expose new students to the broad educational opportunities of Mason. We are excited to host F-1 freshman and transfer undergraduates, INTO Mason, China 1-2-1 and J-1 non-degree exchange students from all over the world! Orientation promotes student development, academic acclimation and preparation, school spirit, and accountability among Mason students.
The program and staff encourage student’s learning, and understanding their own relationship to the intellectual, social, and cultural climate of George Mason University. The International Student Orientation is offered in late August for students enrolling in the fall semester. If you are in the US during the summer, you can register for an earlier orientation date. All students must attend an Orientation session before the start of classes.
